The elbow is a hinge joint that connects the humerus bone of the upper arm to the radius and ulna bones of the lower arm through a complicated system of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Elbow injuries come in many forms and can unfavorably affect people of all ages and lifestyles. Common elbow conditions include overuse injuries like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and tendinitis to diseases such as arthritis and cubital tunnel syndrome.
At Northern California Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained and experienced elbow surgeons are recognized as leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of elbow injuries and conditions. They provide an extraordinary base of shared knowledge with advanced surgery and treatment methods for patients in Silicon Valley and throughout Northern California.
Frequent surgical procedures our elbow surgeons perform include cubital tunnel release (for cubital tunnel syndrome), elbow replacement, total elbow arthroplasty, medial epicondyletcomy (golfer’s elbow), lateral epicondylitis debridement (tennis elbow), elbow ligament reconstruction, ulnar nerve transposition, and osteochondritis dissecans. Please be assured that although highly skilled in using the latest surgical methods, our elbow surgeons always consider using nonsurgical methods to restore your health first.
